New funding goal, reached! FAQ about the survey for our newest members

Continuing the discussion from Funding progress?:

What does this mean for all of you who have not participated in a vote before? Some Frequently asked questions regarding the community feature vote:

Q) How do I vote?
A) You will receive and email containing the survey to the email you used to register for the game.

Q) I don’t see my email! How do I know I didn’t miss it?
A) The devs typically post to the forums announcing the release of the survey. Also, you can follow them on Twitter @OortOnline or Facebook.

Q) The survey has not been released for daaaays, how long does it take to send out a simple survey?!?
A) The survey is carefully crafted with many questions and topics very carefully considered. They typically include much, MUCH more than a simple poll of what project to fund next. They’re still Because of this, it is typically several weeks before the survey is ready for release.

Q) I’ve answered the survey, now when will I see the results?
A) To make sure there is plenty of time for as many backers as possible to answer the survey, The dev’s typically seem to let it stew for a week or more. Then, all that tasty tasty data takes a while to be digested, discussed, and displayed in a manner that is easy for us backers to read. It’s typically well over a month between when the survey is released and when the results are posted.

This is a good question.

Our standard thought path is: “what do we want to learn about the game?” And then we phrase the questions to explicitly try to explore these areas.

So it’s a good question for the community - what do we / you want to learn? What ideas do you have?

Let us know and we’ll try to include some in the next survey.


I would like to learn about the economy ingame, from production/gathering through trading and balancing functions of the game which influence the item flows and their usage.


@Zouls brought up a thread that leads to a good potential question. Namely: Should your stats/equip scale down when you visit a low tiered world as a high tiered player.

I´d like to see the communitys opinion about immersion. A lot of people seem to really care about the lore behind things like respawning or how the “huge” inventory is explained. Would be interesting to see what percentage of players care for such explanations.
The question could be something like: Do you want all features in the game explained and logical or should they just be functional?
